New Start

Surgery is over and the hospital stay was a bit messy–more later. Follow up last Monday to remove staples and the incision has opened a bit. Definately will look like incompetant sword fighter from the front with all the scars.

Not all the cancer was captured in the procedure so chemo will start in about 3 weeks.

Leslie just found out she’ll be pensionable in 18 months. Time to plan for our next project.

      Thanks Jenny. Some sort of crisis has become the norm but it also pushes me along. And Rhizo has been very helpful at twisting my mind away from the resolutions of doom that ride along with illness.

      Since this junk can be as hard or harder on loved ones as it is on the “patient” it’s good to see Leslie is discovering new interests in mobile learning. She’s at a conference right now on it and says she can’t quite grasp a sense of what they are talking about which to me is life long learner code for something new coming soon. Wonder if there is a theory of temptation to lure people into learning?

      Have to read your latest blogs, it feels to me we are on the verge of a change in education enabled or encouraged by revisiting every assumption that somehow started with technology but won’t end there.
